    NATHAN Walker will have to wait in his bid to become the first Australian to play in the NHL after being cut from the Washington Capitals’ roster for the coming season.

    Walker had been part of the Capitals’ pre-season training camp but was one of 17 players cut on Friday, according to the Washington Post.

    It’s far from the end of the road for 21-year-old Walker, who had done well to get back on the ice so quickly after suffering a torn ACL in January.

    He has two years remaining on his entry-level contract with Washington and is likely to be sent to training camp for development club the Hershey Bears, the minor league club where he spent most of last season.

    Walker, born in Wales and raised in Sydney, last year became the first Australian picked in the NHL Draft when selected at 89th overall.
